THE come-hither chords of the Rolling Stones' "Can't You Hear Me Knockin' " slash through the darkened Geffen just before Justina Machado makes her entrance in Neil LaBute's "Some Girl(s)," the twisted romance about a man seeking out his wronged ex-girlfriends just before he heads for the altar. It's a fitting intro for Machado, who's at full sensual throttle when the lights come up -- all hair, lipstick and limbs accenting an endearing naughtiness that nearly overpowers her former lover.

There is something refreshing, in the way that a Popsicle is refreshing, about a summer series set in the summer in a place where people go to summer -- it amplifies the season.

"3 Lbs.," a drama starring Stanley Tucci and Mark Feuerstein about a team of New York City neurosurgeons, will premiere Nov. 14 on CBS, the network said Thursday. "3 Lbs." replaces the crime drama "Smith" in the Tuesday 10-11 p.m. slot. "Smith," a first-year series starring Ray Liotta and Virginia Madsen, was taken off the schedule last week because of declining ratings. Reruns of various crime dramas will continue in that time period until "3 Lbs." premieres.
